Mehdi Hasan in Australia – challenging or reinforcing the mainstream WoT narrative?

 

Mehdi Hasan’s appearance on the ABC’s Q&A this week impressed some in the community. Armed with the relevant stats and data and able to quickly and articulately convey an argument, Mehdi had some good points to raise. However, as Uthman Badar notes, we should not allow impressive style to stand in the place of superficial or problematic substance.  (more…)

HT Turkey’s Yilmaz Celik jailed for 15 years after sham prosecution

HT Turkey’s Yilmaz Celik jailed for 15 years after sham prosecution

 

On Friday the 23rd of June 2017, the “Anti-Terrorist Division” of the Turkish security forces stormed the house of Yilmaz Celik. The raid occurred as Celik, a prominent member of Hizb ut-Tahrir Turkey, gathered with some brothers to break their Ramadan fasts together. He was arrested and immediately taken away. Despite its appeals to Islamic sentiments, this continues a troubling trend of Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s Justice and Development Party (AKP) as they once again move against those who call for Islamic change. All of this occurred in the last ten days of the blessed month of Ramadan, as Turkish judicial authorities also ratified two judicial decisions that result in 15 years imprisonment.

Muslims and the Media Monster

 

‘It’s OK for Muslim men to hit their wives’ is the sensational title that The Australian opted for when reporting on a video in which two Muslim women, members of Hizb ut-Tahrir, relayed the tafsir of a verse of the Qur’an. This predictably sent the media into overdrive and soon all major outlets were covering the story with a domestic violence angle, with politicians lining up to comment and take the moral high ground. Some within the Muslim community released a statement denouncing domestic violence and criticising the view expressed in the video.

Two days later and one of the signatories of that statement, Sheikh Shady Alsuleiman (President of the Australian National Imams Council) is the next media target.
